By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. 1 John 4:9.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלוהים) says:
In seeing Jesus, you see Me and I am love. So if you want to see what love looks like living and working among you, look at Jesus.
Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? John 14:8-10.
And when I see you, I see you in Jesus.
And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach. Colossians 1:21-22.
You see Me in Jesus, and I see you in Jesus. And that is love.
If you are looking for love, you need look no farther than Jesus. The Samaritan woman at the well found this out as have many others. She brought a whole town to come and see Jesus. To come and see love. And when Philip met Jesus, he ran to get Bartholomew, so that he could see love too. And when the children saw Jesus, they ran to Him so they could be held by love too. When the sick heard Jesus was coming, they and their relatives ran to bring them to Jesus, to touch Him, so they could be touched and healed by love too.
I so loved the world that I gave My only begotten Son that all who believe in Him will never perish but will have eternal life. I did not send Him to judge you but to love and save you. He loved you and released you from your sins by His blood, and He made you a kingdom, priests unto Me.
What do you see in Jesus? Healing, provision, grace, truth, blessing, forgiveness and no condemnation. You also see correction, direction, revelation, impartation, and dedication. You see wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption. He never rejected anyone who came to Him. You see love incarnate. You see Me. I was in Christ Jesus reconciling the world to Myself.
What do you see in Jesus? Jesus had a heart big enough for everyone. He ate with sinners and led them to be saints. He loved believers and unbelievers and brought them to faith. All He said and did was to bring people to a knowledge of who I am. To seek out and save the lost.
Anyone who got caught in a storm with Him around them, got delivered. Any one sick or deformed that came to Him got healed. I sent My Word to heal you and deliver you from all destruction. Wherever He was, miracles followed. I sent My Word, living and working in you and among you, and He healed and delivered you just as I had promised.
What do you see in Jesus? You see the Bread of Life for a man to eat and never die. You see the Light of the world, and no one who follows that Light will ever walk in darkness, NEVER, instead he will have the Light of life. You see the door to all good things and every benefit. You see the Way, the truth, and the life, you will never go astray on that Way for it is the highway of holiness. Eternal life is in Him, that is, is in Love. He is the vine, and you are the branches drawing all you need from in Him. He is the resurrection and the life. He will raise you from the grave. You see Him doing this for Lazarus.
What do you see in Jesus? The One who was willing and able to take all your sins upon Himself and die for them in your place. The One who purchased you and redeemed with His blood. And in Jesus you see a heart that is all for you. In Jesus you see Heaven open for you.
It is all wrapped up in Jesus. He is the answer to everything. He is My answer to you for all that went wrong through sin in the world, but He is beyond that even. In Him you get a glimpse of the love that is higher than the sky and deeper than the sea, you get glimpse of what you have in Me. You do not begin to understand the love I have for you but it is no less true because of that nor does it diminish in light of that.
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? Who will bring a charge against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies; who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Just as it is written, “For Your sake we are being put to death all day long; We were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:31-39.
I have given you everything in Jesus for in Him you see My heart and in Him I give you My heart. And it is in Him that you give Me your heart. Our hearts unite forever in Jesus. One in the magnificent, all encompassing, never ending, first love that is always new though from everlasting. I love you. I am your forever Father.
